The Relatives Came. This is the title of a little book for children, written by Cynthia Rylant and illustrated by Stephen Gammell. A copy of it came in a box of Cheerios, and Carol read it to me last night. (During half-time of the Jets game, not at bedtime.) Having just had the relatives come, the book had currency. And it also captures the poignancy of visits to and from loved ones, which has lingered with us after the wonderful two weeks we had with our far-flung family. The back of the book states that it is for "Ages 4-7". Don't believe it.
